Annie Oakley is one of the coolest people in history.

Annie Oakley was probably the most famous marksman/woman in the world when this short clip was produced in Edison's Black Maria studio in West Orange, New Jersey. Barely five feet tall, Annie was always associated with the wild west, although she was born in 1860 as Phoebe Ann Oakley Mozee (or Moses)in Darke County, Ohio. Nevertheless, she was a staple in the Buffalo Bill Wild West Show and similar wild west companies. Because of her diminutive stature, she was billed as "Little Sure...

Librivox recording of Moby Dick, or the Whale, by Herman Melville. Read by Stewart Wills Few things, even in literature, can really be said to be unique -- but Moby Dick is truly unlike anything written before or since. The novel is nominally about the obsessive hunt by the crazed Captain Ahab of the book's eponymous white whale. But interspersed in that story are digressions, paradoxes, philosophical riffs on whaling and life, and a display of techniques so advanced for its time that some have...

This paper involves an in-depth study of the art of command at all three levels of warfare. It examines this art through the eyes of one of Napoleon's Marshals, Louis N. Davout. The paper addresses and accomplishes three primary goals. First, it defines act of command and shows its relevance to modern day warfare. Second, the paper shows that Marshal Davout was the best of Napoleon's generals and had an art of command that rivaled the Emperor himself. Finally, the paper demonstrates how Davout...

For this paper I thought it would be interesting to investigate the personality of one of history's greatest battlefield surgeons, Baron Dominique-Jean Larrey who served as Napoleon's Surgeon-in-Chief throughout the rise and fall of Napoleon's Empire. While researching for an in-class presentation about the devastating toll diseases such as typhus and dysentery had on Napoleon's Grand Arme, a theme kept presenting itself when reading about the accounts of Dr. Larrey. The writings of...
